Junior reckons “it’s too noisy.”
Me? I can’t stand Green Day. Punk? Pah. Just snotty, stary, immaculately-scruffily coiffed Americans opening the door to the limp likes of Sum 41 and any number of other anarcho-veneered, Studio Line-spiked college brats.
Imagine my irritation when ‘’American Idiot’ kicked a hole in our heads with a chorus strong enough to fell Big Daddy. It’s like your Harley cannoning down the road, leaving you flat on your arse, thinking, erm, “Rats. I swore I’d never like a Green Day song.” Thank God the lyrics are so trite.
Sing along to the age of paranoia!

Dunno how you could liek this and hate Greed Day in general. It’s the same as their other songs. Except they’re forty or something. I mean, look at them. Punk my hole.
Heh. Greed Day. That could have been some sort of Freudian slip. If I had that much of an opinion.
Sure, the style’s pretty consistent. It’s just that this is good.
They had some good-by-the-standards-of-this songs in their day, like. The first album (some will tell me they had a previous one), whatsitcalled….
Dookie, it says here. Yeah.
I don’t like them.
Neither do I, really. Just not really appreciating much of a distinction between this, and their early stuff.
You need to have the ear of a connor… connoisi… conaso… an expert.
Probably. Or, more likely, you just need to be contrary.
Ì thought I was being contrary. I’ll have to step it up.
Actually, you did a good job. More of this sort of thing.
